New Delhi, Apr 21 (UNI) As many as 352 passengers of Jet Airlines flight had a narrow escape today at Amsterdam airport as the plane hit a “suspected” tarmac while taking off. After the incident pilot brought down the aircraft and returned to the Dutch capital. According to sources, in its Boeing 777-300ER plane, there were 337 passengers and 15 crew members at the time of the minor accident. The flight 9W 234 was scheduled for Toronto from Amsterdam. Sources said the flight suffered a tail strike while taking off from Amsterdam to Toronto and later faced pressurisation problems. Following the issues, the pilot decided to return to Amsterdam, they added. But the Jet spokesperson described the incident ‘suspected’ and said that the plane was allowed to take off after inspection which proves that there was no such accident. In fact, pilot thought that it may had a tail strike and that why he decided to return back to Amsterdam airport. In January this year, a Jet Airways plane’s tail had touched the runway during landing at the Dhaka airport. The flight was from Mumbai. UNI ADP RSA 2039
